biodegradable cups with lids

The biodegradable cups with lids are an excellent substitute for plastic. They are frequently made from natural substances and are designed to decompose over time. In addition, they are cost-effective, simple to reuse and recycle, and can be placed in the compost bin.

Compostable vs biodegradable

Numerous individuals use the terms biodegradable & compostable to describe environmentally friendly products. However, these terms are ambiguous and can refer to a variety of substances. It is essential to understand the distinctions between the two.

The term compostable refers to organic waste that has been decomposed by microorganisms. This is typically accomplished via a process involving humidity and heat. The resulting substance is known as humus. This nutrient-rich substance is excellent for plants.

Biodegradable plastics are those that decompose under natural conditions. In the case of plastic, biodegradability refers to its ability to be broken down by naturally occurring bacteria and fungi. Typically, the breakdown of a biodegradable container takes between three and six months.

Several biodegradable products can be manufactured from either plant-based or petroleum-based substances. Some are designed to reduce the amount of toxic residue left behind.

Landfills and soil both contain biodegradable and compostable materials. They decompose into several organic components, including water, carbon dioxide, and biomass.

To be considered compostable, a plastic must meet the criteria outlined in the ASTM D6400 and D6600 standards. These specifications specify the chemical and marine biodegradability of products.
